Summer in Green Point: where to go for a drink and a dip in the pool

Warmer, longer days in the city mean sun, fun, and cocktails for days. With Cape Town’s water levels finally stabilising, we’re in for one hell of a thirst-quenching summer. Green Point has a lot to choose from – if you haven’t discovered your favourite one yet, we have a list of great spots to choose from right in your area.

 

Batstone Pools

Situated in the vibrant suburb De Waterkant, this exclusive rooftop pool is the perfect spot to revitalise and relax your mind and body. With views of Cape Town’s iconic Lion’s Head, Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Devil’s Peak, you can soak in the beautiful city surrounds. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the last rays of sun with a drink in hand from their bar, or to get your creative juices flowing in a comfortable and luxurious lounger, with Batstone’s delicious coffee on tap.

 

The Cape Royale

This gorgeous, sophisticated five-star hotel is situated close to the bustling V&A Waterfront and De Waterkant: an ideal location for summer activities. With a rooftop pool deck, you can sip on your Aperol spritz whilst soaking in the 360 degree view of Cape Town’s iconic sights – but note that it’s reserved for hotel guests only. Looking after your summer body is effortless at The Cape Royale, with spacious suits surrounded by Juliet balconies, a fully equipped cardiovascular gym, and a spa.

 

The Vue Sky Bar Lounge

 

With a chic and contemporary setting, this is the ideal place to chill amidst 360-degree views of the City Bowl. However, the vistas extend beyond the bustling CBD to include Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Signal Hill, and the crystal colours of the Atlantic Ocean. The Vue is a spectacular venue for cocktails and sundowners or for delicious meals and tapas.

 

The Deck Rooftop

 

This rooftop bar is a favourite for scorching summer days when nothing will do but a drink and dip in the pool. An oasis in the middle of the city with a full mountain view, The Deck is perfect for a cocktail, sunbathe, and swim with a sophisticated global and local crowd.
